Broccoli Pakora

It was one of those day when your refrigerator is almost empty and you are trying to push one more day before grocery shopping. I was in that scenario when I found only Broccoli in my refrigerator and nothing else. And right at the moment an idea of Broccoli recipe sprouted. How about Broccoli Pakora I thought... I added stem also not just broccoli florets. A must try recipe....




Ingredients
Broccoli - 1 cup
Besan Flour - 1/2 cup
Corn Starch - 1/4 cup
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
Chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala Powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Asafetida - 1/4 tsp( less than that)
fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - one string
Cilantro - 2 tbs
Salt to taste
Water as needed
Color powder - A pinch
Oil for deep frying



Method

Wash the broccoli florets and slightly trim the stem.Dry the broccoli florets.

Mix gram flour ,Corn Starch , Curry leaves, Cilantro and spices together and little by little add water. Batter should not be too runny or too thick.

Now heat oil in a frying pan. Drop a little of batter if it comes up right away that means oil is perfect.

Dip each broccoli floret in the batter making sure it is coated from all sides and drop in hot oil. Fry them in small batches till they turn golden in color.

Drain on paper towel and Serve it hot!!!
